Reported in Sage Journals, lead investigators Klaas Frederik Franzen and Moritz Meusel funded by the Medizinische Klinik III of the Universitaetsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH).  As noted ”This is the first trial to evaluate the acute changes in peripheral and central hemodynamics as well as PWV using an e-cigarette without nicotine as a control group. The increased parameters within the nicotine-containing devices might be a link to an increased cardiovascular risk, which is well known for cigarettes. Future trials should focus on the chronic effects of vaping nicotine-containing or nicotine-free liquids on peripheral and central blood pressures, as well as on arterial stiffness.”
